This paper describes a methodology for quickly learning to play games at a strong level. The methodology consists of a novel combination of three techniques, and a variety of experiments on the game of Othello demonstrates their usefulness. First, structures or topologies in neural network connectivity patterns are used to decrease the number of learning parameters and to deal more effectively with the structural credit assignment problem, which is to change individual network weights based on… CONTINUE READING
